Stick to the law and pass a budget

Success - Article sent! close

The Senate has not passed a budget for three-plus years. Now, as I see it, our president does not want a budget passed and Harry Reid is simply doing the bidding of the president by refusing to bring any budget proposal up for a vote. Consequently, Barack Obama can spend unlimited amounts of money without a budget to hold him back -- borrowed money, that is.

Congress has sent budget bills to the Senate only to be ignored by Reid and the Senate, so we certainly can't blame the House for not trying to accomplish getting a budget passed. But why is there not more public outcry about this? Why do not our congressmen and senators demand that a budget be passed? After all, it's the law, stupid! Maybe if we had had budgets for the past three-plus years we wouldn't be so many trillions more in debt than we were at the end of the villain George Bush's term.
